Bedrock Server Catchup


Hello CubeCrafters,

No one likes bugs, so I fixed a load.

Most of these bugs affected us across the network so now they have been utterly annihilated. You should notice that we are more stable and your game experience is even better.
Previously we've done updates like this totally silently, however, we now want to share with you what we are up to so I hope you enjoy the details!

Also, we hit 19,000 concurrent on Bedrock today (smashing our player record on that platform)! Whoop! Thank you, everyone, for playing <3

Thanks for reading! We hope you'll have some epic moments playing these new maps, happy playing and stay safe! :p
Hi everyone,

Over the past few days, we have seen significantly increased numbers of players across our network. Over the weekend we consistently peaked at over 22,000 players across both our Bedrock and Java platforms.

We understand many of you are now out of school, isolating, or otherwise stuck at home. We have been working over the weekend and alongside our suppliers in order to increase capacity as quickly as we can to ensure that you all can continue to play during these unprecedented times.

For those who are interested we are:
  • Increasing the number of nodes in our database cluster to help handle the increased load from both the players and Skyblock
  • Increasing the number of frontends to support more concurrent connections across Bedrock and Java
  • Increasing the size of our game server pool. We have actually used up all the available stock from our provider so are working with them to replenish the stock or to switch the model of server we use.
As a temporary measure, we are increasing the party limits across all ranks by 2 on the Java network and by 1 on the Bedrock network.

Some more stats:
  • Our egressing bandwidth has doubled to 7Gbps - that’s 1,400 HD Netflix streams at once!
  • We can now support another 1,500 games running after getting a load more dedicated servers.
  • We've added a total of 4TB of RAM so far!

It really isn't our position to advise on anything related to Coronavirus and COVID-19 however the following organisations have provided resources for members of the public which we would like to draw your attention to:
Awesome Skyblock Update!

Hello Skyblock CubeCrafters!

It's time for another Skyblock update. Since Skyblock has been released, we've been sorting through a lot of Skyblock suggestions, and in this update, we've decided to add some! If you want to learn more about this epic update, read below!

Ability to move Villager shops

The Shop Villagers on every island can be very useful, but sometimes they get in the way. Which is why we've added the ability to move them! This was a community desired suggestion. If you click on your villager, you can dismantle it by clicking on the Villager Spawn Egg in the bottom left of the screen.

Locating the Dismantle Shop button.
There must always be at least one Villager in your world. As for the rest of them, well, that's up to you what you do with them! Fancy only having one Villager in the world? Go right ahead! Want them all in the same area? Knock yourself out! You can't place Villagers too close to other Villagers though, so you might need to do some careful planning. If you look at the image below, this shows you how far they can be from each other, and the barriers indicate where you can't place blocks.

Kicking players from profiles

Since the release of Skyblock, we've been listening to all of your suggestions. One of the biggest suggestions you've made is having the ability to kick a player from your profile. Well, now is your time to shine and kick all the players you want from your profile!
